How to Play Paintball
The members of the game are divided into two equal teams. The game starts when both the teams are at their bases. If a player is hit, the ball has to leave a mark on the player or equipment. If the ball hits on a surface nearby and the paint splashes on the player, then it's called a splatter. If you are not certain of the hit, you can shout out 'paint check'. If a team member is hit, he has to place his gun over his head and immediately leave the field. If the objective of the game is elimination, then you have to play to eliminate the opponent's team members. Use cheap paintball guns for ordinary games.
